This Thanksgiving mini unit was designed to meet two Kindergarten Common Core Standards. It’s a great supplement to your Thanksgiving fun!
Reading for Information: With prompting and support, identify the main topic and recall key details of a text.
**I summarized key details from The Pilgrim’s First Thanksgiving to create a book for students to illustrate. Students can retell the story using their illustrations. A photograph of the guided drawings I used with my class is included.
Math: Add within 10 by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
**Blackline masters are included to create a turkey that is the inspiration for a math art project. Students will add the number of feathers they put on their turkey. Three different ways for students to show their work is included. Students will show their work on a “circle” that goes on the turkey’s body. A photograph of a sample is included.
